Muting and Unmuting Yourself

A crucial part of being a good meeting participant, is knowing how to mute and umute yourself.  If you are using just a normal phone to participate in the audio conference, and not connecting also to the WebEx meeting itself, you may need to investigate how to mute yourself (e.g. push the mute button or press *6 for example).

If you are using the WebEx Meeting and WebEx Audio (e.g. Direct Dial in or Voice over IP) option, to connect to the audio portion of the meeting using your phone or the computer, the following steps can be used to mute or unmute yourself during a meeting.

Muting/Unmuting Yourself at the Start of a Meeting

Muting/Umutting Yourself while the Presentation is in Full Screen

To mute yourself after the presenter has started the meeting, you will notice that the full meeting screen as shown above, disappears, and is replaced with the following bar which should appear in the top middle of your screen.


**Don’t see this bar?  Scroll to the bottom of this page for more info.

You can mute and unmute yourself simply by clicking the now larger “Microphone Icon” that appeared when the meeting started.

  • <– You are MUTED (you cannot be heard)

  •  <– You are NOT Muted (you can be heard)

Don’t See the Bar?

If you do not see the bar mentioned, it’s possible the presenter hasn’t started the presentation in full screen mode.  If not, try following the steps at the top of this page instead for “Muting/Umuting Yourself at the Start of a Meeting”.

Otherwise, the bar may just be hiding itself at the top center of your screen as shown here:

To “Unhide” the bar, simply hover your mouse over the area titled “Viewing….desktop” and you will see the bar will then reveal itself by sliding down from the top of the screen.

**Note:  The bar will automatically retract itself after it notices you are not using it.

Using the “Raise Hand” Feature

The “Raise Hand” feature is very handy, and gives you an effective way to call attention to yourself even when you are on mute, or have been muted by the meeting host.

Raising and Lowering Your Hand from the Main WebEx Window


Raising and Lowering Your Hand from the Full Screen WebEx Window

  2. Click the “Raise Hand” button to raise your hand, or the “Lower Hand” button to lower your hand
